Day 4 of the BBA (Big Beastly Adventure) saw RRR and Nui heading off (by car) to the flea market which, contrary to the brochure, is not even remotely within walking distance. The flea market is huge - over 110 acres, with a lot of variety (especially in sparkly t-shirts, as RRR soon found). Thank heavens we brought our little scooters because walking up and down those aisles for 4 hours would have been next to impossible. You could tell we're new at this snowbirding thing because we took off under a blazing hot sun with no hats, sunglasses or water. It was 82F in the shade and that was at 4 p.m. Even Nui was hot! We'd better take a crash course in hot weather survival because we're going to be living in the desert in about 3 weeks.
RRR had originally said that she wasn't all that interested in going to a flea market because - and I quote - "we're not going to buy anything". Boy was she wrong!!! A lot of vendors had big smiles on their faces when we left.
